Deputies: Woman gives birth to child fathered by 11-year-old

Police said she maintained a sexual relationship with the boy until he was 14 years old, according to WFTS.

Detectives secured an arrest warrant after completing their investigation.

A cursory glance at Florida's sexual battery law shows that Mowry could face 30 years to life because the victim was under the age of 12 in January of 2014.

A Florida woman has been arrested on child abuse charges after authorities said she gave birth to a child fathered by an 11-year-old.

In Mowry's original statement to law enforcement, she told deputies that at one point the boy forcibly had sex with her while she was "highly medicated" on Benadryl and Amoxicillin due to a cold.

Mowry later denied that any of it ever happened during a recorded conversation with the boy.

At the time, Mowry was 22 years old and the boy was 11 years old.

The woman's child, now 3, will be placed with a responsible adult, deputies said.

Marissa Mowry, 25, is being held without bail at the Hillsborough County Jail, according to the sheriff's department.
